We’re constantly fascinated by what our zodiac sign says about our lives, whether it's which signs are most compatible or how each sign handles conflict in relationships. That's why Bustle has enlisted Mecca Woods, a New York City-based astrologer of MyLifeCreated.com, to tell us all about how astrology is affecting our lives each day. Today's topic: your daily horoscope for Jan. 9, 2018.
It's a high energy start to the day as the Libra Moon opposes rebellious Uranus in Aries and meets up with Mercury in fiery Sagittarius by mid-morning. Under this kind of cosmic combination, our minds should be percolating with ideas which could make today a productive one. By mid-afternoon, the Moon shifts into passionate and seductive Scorpio, turning feelings and the intensity up to a thousand. Still, under a Scorpio Moon we may find our instincts and intuition to be sharper now, which can be helpful for moving past challenges or pursuing something we want. When Venus in committed Capricorn teams up with Mars in Scorpio later in the afternoon, our finances and relationships get a boost. We can use this combination to manifest financial opportunities and romance. By the late evening, the Scorpio Moon teams up with serious Saturn in Capricorn, helping us to find the dedication, passion, and resilience to achieve a goal or solve a problem.
